[applause] >> madam speaker, mr. majority leader, and distinguished colleagues in congress from both parties, ladies and gentlemen and members of the brooke family, our colleague ted kennedy was born into history. he was part of history throughout his life. he made history, and he knew history. and it was his respect for ed brooke's role in history and his personal affection for ed brooke that led him to champion this congressional gold medal. obviously, we're so delighted that vicki kennedy is here today , and his great friend, my colleague now in the senate, paul kirk is here with us to celebrate this moment. in one of his first sermons after finishing his studies at boston university, martin luther king jr. observed the thing that we need in the world today is a group of men and women who will stand up
. we are deciding whether we are going to create jobs here in america or we're going to send those jobs overseas. and we're certainly deciding whether we are going to have a stronger energy independent america or a weaker oil-addicted america. i think the choice is clear. the challenge before us is one of political will. because americans already know how to do what this bill sets the framework for, we know how to transition to clean energy, how to reduce pollution, how to grow our economy. in my home state of oregon, with a 25% renewable energy standard by 2025, the guarantee of that market, clean energy jobs are growing seven times faster than jobs in the oregon economy as a whole. we have had three solar manufacturers move to the state in the last couple of years. we have communities in rural oregon that are producing partnerships to create jobs in the woods again, to thin the force, to return the forest health, and, in the process, reduce renewable energy from biomass. despite the recession that we currently are in, our economy is 16% larger than it was in 2005. yet, the missions si
to go back to basic truths that have worked for america and recognize we want to favor the work ethic. you want to favor saving and learning and insist that people actually should be able to afford how they live and not try to prop them up with false subsidies that teach them terrible habits. >> we should also tell you that the program is being broadcast on xm satellite. potus. >> our first question will come from chad. >> good morning, mr. speaker. >> we cannot hear the questions. >> oh, sorry about that. this morning, mr. speaker. >> good morning. >> my first question is short, and then i will go to the next question. politics seems to always blame people before they got into office. i have heard you make a case of jimmy carter and clinton and obama makes claims of bush, and clinton made claims to bush prior to that. when do you think politicians actually begin to take responsibility for things that happen on their watch? and then, theoretically, the republican party talks about smaller government and a conservative type of mindset where maybe we should only have the departments of
in america today. that massive change is because we have already turned over to the federal government most of our financial systems for them to be managing it. so they control our purse. this government controls the purse of america. and we have done that this year. it's there. we bailed people out. we are now voting members of financial organizations and businesses, like automobile firms. now we want to control the american people's purse. now we have to say to ourselves, well, what's going to happen when we do, when we create this great system, how do we know what it's going to look like? i want to use this, quite frankly but it's not fair because it's one-sided and this document is two-sided. but this document printed in smaller font is two-sided. here's what we have in the way of what the government needs to create for a health care plan. this is the substitute, the people's idea. it's the difference, ladies and gentlemen, between liberty and government. and you know, this week a whole lot of people came an awful long way so they could express their opinion and they were called radical
challenge to development based on partnership, not paternalism. america provides funding and support and in return partner nations develop their own strategies and are held accountable for results. these principles of accountability and country ownership will guide the is to its global health initiative, which will search for new, effective way to deliver health services to people in desperate need. especially on the continent of africa. mark is a humble, d.c., affective man. as the coordinator of the emergency plan relief, he led our efforts to expand the number of patients receiving revival treatments to over 2 million in 2008. he is in africa today. he is beginning work on a project focused on mothers and newborn children. this is an area where research is urgently needed. infant and maternal the torricelli rates -- and mortality rates are unacceptably high in the developing world. he will develop a strategy to provide timely, effective, comprehensive health services to new mothers and babies. he defines his goal as saving as many lives as quickly as possible. the bush institute w
're unique here in the united states of america. madam speaker, we're a unique people and, yes, we are the progeny of western europe and we're the progeny that came from primarily western european stock and at the time that we received the best that western europe had to offer, we also received a fundamental christian faith as the core of our moral values. and this is a judeo-christian nation, madam speaker. the core of our moral values is embodied within the culture. whether people of whatever church people go to or whether they go to church, wherever they worship or whether they worship, we still have the american people as a culture who understand christian values and christian principles, the judeo-christian values that are timeless. and so i would illustrate that, madam speaker, in this way. that when -- an example would be this, let's just say if an honorable man from texas were to pull into his driveway and his neighbor's dog had gotten loose and ran underneath the tire of his car and if he killed -- if you're in texas or iowa or most of the places in the country, if you run
ideas and find something that's right for america to lower the cost of health care, the pelosi health care bill is going to skyrocket health care, costs for everybody, skyrocket taxes and we've got to stop it and i yield back. . mr. gingrey: i wants to yield to dr. fleming if he has any concluding remarks and i welcome any of my colleagues who remain on the floor if you can. we have another 20 minutes and i would yield back to the gentleman from louisiana. mr. fleming: i thank the gentleman. yeah, to conclude my comments, i was comparing in contrasting the pelosi bill with the republican bill. the bottom line, mr. speaker, is, there's only two ways you can control cost. there is the nancy pelosi way where you have an extremely large governmental system that disconnects the patient and the doctor from the cost and it leaves it to the government. it leaves it to a very, very distant decision maker in the federal government to make decisions about our personal lives and put in force things that we have no control over. that's leading to rationing and long lines the way canada and the u.k

that the president's own economic adviser has said 5.5 million jobs in america are going to be destroyed. people are going to be put out of work because of that tax burden that's placed on small business. . this whole bill is going to destroy america. it's going to destroy everything we have in america. i recently, let me tell you a little story, just recently, mr. speaker, i was recently talking to one of the blue dog democrats and i said, show me in this document where nancy pelosi has the constitutional authority to take over the health care system in america. he cannot because this is absolutely unconstitutional. i yield back. mr. gingrey: he couldn't do it. i appreciate the gentleman for yielding back. mr. speaker, i know we just have a few minutes left and we're going to try to wrap this up. i want to make a few other points because this bill that we're talking about, this 3962 that we'll be voting on saturday, this massive increase in bureaucracy, when it came through the energy and commerce committee, i counted 53 czars. i think we're up to 120 now. but the most egregious of all the czar
. there are many reasons for america's victory in the cold war, including the resolute vision of our 40th president and the steady hand of our 41st president. one crucial factor was america's support for dissidents. . >> throughout my presidency, we met with families of political prisoners. the bush institute will continue this cause. we will support advocates of freedom around the globe. as a first step, we will assemble a freedom coalition, a depository of memoirs of letters from democratic activists. the freedom collection will be on line for the world to see. among the leaders to have agreed to participate or the president of liberia. the founder of iran's revolutionary guard, who became an advocate for democratic change. a man who spent 10 years in eight gulag. we will send a message to dissidents and underground preachers and political prisoners around the world, we hear your voice, and as you stand for your freedom, free people will stand with you. i am also pleased to announce the bush institutes's first fellow in human freedom. for decades, he and his fellow colombians suffered under a bru
such as groceries. when women earn more, families benefit. closing the wage gap is a part of strengthening america's families and providing hope for a better future. i stand in support of equal pay for all. i look forward to the day when all women receive equal pay for equal work. the american recovery and reinvestment act recognized the need to get our people back to work and that includes women. during the current recession from december, 2007, until september, 2009, roughly two million women lost their jobs according to employers across this nation. as of september, women represented 49.9% of all workers excluding those in the armed forces and farm workers. the american recovery and reinvestment act contains powerful provisions to retrain workers. the american recovery and reinvestment act has made nearly 4 billion available through the department of labor for job training programs. just under $3 billion of this funding has already gone out to states through formula grants through the workforce investment act. speaking to the deputy director of workforce training where i live, the county will r

agreement on the kinds of steps we need to take in order to lower the cost of health care in america and expand access. the bill before us in my view is a big government takeover of our health care system that will replace the current health care that americans get. republicans have offered better solutions all year on the major bills that have come to this floor. i think we had a much better solution on the stimulus bill that would have created twice the jobs at half the cost. i think our better solution on the budget clearly had less spending and less debt and lower deficits. i think our all-of-the-above american energy plan -- the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman will suspend. the gentleman may proceed. mr. boehner: i think our all-of-the-above american energy plan was a much better solution to the national energy tax, the so-called cap and trade bill that was on this floor in june. and i believe what we have before us as the republican substitute is a commonsense plan that takes steps toward reducing the cost of health insurance in america and expand access. simple things like
. a message to america's daughters, tell us what your message is to the next generation about leadership in this age of reform. >> i appreciate you asking that question. when i was here in 2005, i had not thought about writing any books, but i did tell young people that each of you can make an individual contribution, and how necessary that contribution is. constant reinvigoration of our society by people taking responsibility for the future. in my book, i address that message to young women, because i believe that nothing has been more wholesome for the political process and the governmental process than the increased participation of women. i use the word wholesome even before i hear david saying i think more women in congress were important to passing health care legislation. i am sure that that is the case. as i broke -- as i go across the country, and with the book, you need all kinds of different people, those interested in public affairs, those interested in your personal story. young women give me so much hope, and their fathers do, and the confidence they have in their daughters

lives begin. madam speaker, god cannot continue to bless america while we are killing 4,000 babies every day through abortion. he just cannot and will not because he's a holy righteous god. he tells us in jeremiah he knows us before we are ever knit together in our mother's womb. we've got to stop abortion. we've got to stop this bill that's going to continue to fund abortions with taxpayers' dollars. the future of our america depends upon it. right to life is absolutely the central part of liberty and freedom in america. madam speaker, we cannot lose that right. and i yield back. mr. smith: dr. gingrey. mr. gingrey: madam speaker, i thank the gentleman for yielding. we were on the floor last night and a gentleman, democratic side, part of the majority, in their hour, mr. grayson, talked about the number of lives that were lost or being lost in every congressional district across this country because of a lack of health insurance. i tried, last night i asked the gentleman to yield to a friendly question, and my question was going to be, representative, are you pro-life or pro-choice on t
bring about a new energy frontier for the united states of america and that we would be partners with the rest of our agencies in bringing about a solution for the realities of climate change in which we face. in the last nine months, our team has worked closely with members of the white house and with congress as we move forward with that agenda. you will hear much more about this. i see our department as being the energy suppliers for the united states of america. we produce about 30% of the natural gas in the united states. we produced about 40% of the coal that we use here in america. . . ls which this department has had responsibility for overseeing its production from the public lands we also have opened up a new chapter for america in the department of interior. and that's our efforts to send up renewable energy and really to engage in the energy revolution that we see spreading across the united states of america. and so the efforts you'll hear about today are about how we are capturing the wind from the high plains and from the deserts in arizona and we are capturing the
. since 2006, i've introduced the "save america's future economy commission x," the s.a.f.e. act to provide a process for congress's expedited consideration of legislation proposed by the s.a.f.a. act's committee. i'm pleased senator lieberman and others have joined in this effort. and over on the house side we have -- both of them are here today who have worked very hard. congressman cooper and congressman wolf. it's similar to the base realignment and closure commission. the s.a.f.e. act would break that legislative log jam in washington by creating a bipartisan, bicamera committee that would go before congress for an up or down vote. i know some members question why congress cannot pass the necessary legislation. mr. chairman, you pointed out in your opening statement and senator lieberman has been eloquent in pointing it out, also. the fact of the matter is congress is not willing to take short-term pain for long-term gain, period. and that's why we need a commission to provide the solutions and the expedited procedure for an up-and-down vote so reform proposals don't die in
and ultimately we will craft a bill that will secure america's economic end and environmental future for generations. i'm pledged to that. >> senator baucus, thank you so much. any colleagues wish to be heard? >> thank you very much, madam chair, and thank you again for your determination through this process. we know how important this big is. and i will be voting to report this bill out of committee, but as i said yesterday, i have a number of amendments that i'm frustrated i wasn't able to introduce because of the procedural barriers put up here by the fact our colleagues have not come to the table. as we discussed we have not seen this on other committees with controversies over bills. this is what they have chosen to do. i will say that yesterday senator graham and carrie lieberman discussed the work they're doing on this bill, on the major energy bill and i don't think that what has happened here today is any indication of when we're going to see in the future, with many of our colleague who is with willing to come forward to work on this. among the amendments that i feel is ve

the affordable health care for america act. the bill would more accurately be entitled, the big spending, big taxing, big entitlement, pelosi plan for big government takeover of america's health care act. despite house majority leader steny hoyer claiming that during their press conference that the health care bill was part of an open and transparent process to reform our health care system, the american people were oddly prohibited from even attending the liberal democrat's pub less -- publicity rally on the steps of the capitol. mr. speaker, this really isn't surprising considering the democrats habit of frozing -- freezing republicans out of the process. mr. speaker, the new pelosi plan looks and sounds starkly similar to the democrat's first attempts at a big government takeover of health care, h.r. 3200. that is because essentially it is the same big government socialist nonsense speaker pelosi introduced months ago. the same plan that caused nearly millions -- cause literally millions of american to speak out against it through letters, petitions, protests and by showing up to register

. i've never been more concerned about the future of our country. america is going broke. the federal government now owes more in debts and commitment than the total combined net worth of all americans. the national debt is raising toward $12 trillion and growing at rates that haven't been matched since world war ii. in addition we have amassed massive unfunded promises to guarantee future entitlement benefits that when added with liabilities like the debt total $56 trillion. every man, woman and child, 184,000. united states, as jim said, will soon lose its aaa bond rating. the dollar appears to be losing its important status as the primary international reserve currency. meaning everything traded internationally, such as food and oil, will increase in price. our biggest bankers are japan and china and oil exporting countries like saudi arabia. is it a good idea to be so indebted to countries like saudi arabia and communist china? my computer was compromised by the chinese, where human rights are an afterthought. catholic bishops in jail, protestant pastors in jail. the news we got f

for this amendment will tell america's doctors that we are committed to putting in place reforms that will allow them to do their job. interesting, we're talking about the ama a few moments ago. this is one of the top priorities for the american medical association. and one the reasons, quite frankly that they endorsed the democrat, the underlying bill. not doing this will actually negate any of the benefits to america's doctor that might occur within the bill. one of the other things that is so important to the nation's physicians is any next amendment. >> how many do you have? >> eight. the next would require medicare payments to be 25% what would be standard in the government or state-based programs. for too many, medicaid is -- puts is -- is an empty promise. it puts care on the reach of the citizens. those with medicaid find themselves unable to access services because medicaid pays less than than private ensurers. it pays even less than medicare. patient then realize that coverage does not equal rack sses. medicaid payment short falls cost shift and produce charity care. as worst, they refuse t

deployments of much of america's ground forces have brought a new focus to the signature was of these wars and on the psychological health of the force and their families. according to a rand study last year that could be more than 600,000 service members with tbi, ptsd or similar illnesses. some signs are apparent, severe depression or even suicide. others are more elusive than sometimes ill-defined. arriving in the form of nightmares, anxiety or unexplained and uncontrollable anger. other acts, seemingly unrelated, bear this in the mes indelible fingerprints. petty thefts, fights, spousal abuse, drug or alcohol abuse. today it is all too clear that tbi, post-traumatic stress and numerous other related mental ailments are widespread, entrenched and insidious. this department has over time realize military medicine must have the same expertise, focus and standards of excellence to address psychological wounds as we do for physical injuries. over the past two years the department of defense's made some significant steps in the right direction. starting with the budget, the fiscal year 2010

but in our mosques and community centers. we are acting on the guiding principles of islam and america. i think it is our leaders who must rise up to face down the ideology that is aimed to show division in our society. i think it'll be critical to ensure that information was shared and evaluate it properly. i think it will be important to preserve the necessary tools to law enforcement in the intelligence committee that will allow them to uncover data points related to extremist terrorism. i think the two provisions will include the roving wiretap provision and business record authority -- should be renewed. it may prevented the effective use of these techniques by law enforcement the de i think congress -- enforcement. i think congress should fully support and implement it. the demonstration should look at existing laws to determine whether more aggressive use would be appropriate against those providing a logical support to loan will terrorists in violent extremists. >> is easily. if you can come to a -- excuse me. if you can please come to a close. the number of committee members here

to perhaps keep america safe. this is a systemic problem. we believe that this jeopardize as, in the future, our national security. it revolves around the threat of radicalization of americans in their homeland. this is a threat that we have identified for years. it is a continuing and it is an evolving threats. if we're going to confront this threat to contain it and ultimately defeat this threat, the tools that we use also need to continue to evolve. this is a very, very dangerous problem. it is why we, as a committee, today, as the republicans on the intelligence committee, are calling for the committee to immediately begin a full investigative process into the circumstances surrounding the shootings at fort hood. there is a prosecution that is going on. but we need to look at this at a broader context what do we need to do? how do we need to evolve our relationships between the various organizations that are given the challenge to keep america safe? how to weave all those tools? how do we eat all those -- how do we evolve those tools? how do we of all those relationships? we need the fu

we have in america, you are now than a decade ago. some of that is based on what barriers the federal government has placed in front of creating businesses and keeping jobs here in america. excessive regulations and a tax structure that punishes success. it is a litigation system. it is our failure to be energy independent. when you add all these things together, it becomes less expensive to manufacture products that are necessary for the health and well-being of this country, and it forces is the overseas. the "your *" has reported that antivirals similar to tamiflu can be made but they do not get the approval of the fda. important products like tamiflu, because of the barriers created by this federal government, and its elected officials, and we wonder how we get into these types of situations. rather than try to assess blame, we need to move forward to provide the best solution for -- we have some capacity. we have enough -- i believe is the vaccine to the detainees in the guantanamo bay. and yet we do not have enough for our seniors here in america. we have to figure out how we ha
in everybody's home in america and people are standing up and saying how they feel about it, where the changes need to be made and how they feel and generally speaking today the speaker's 1,900-page bill, $1 trillion bill, got a big goose egg because i didn't run into one person who said, that sounds like the plan for me. thank you. mrs. blackburn: i thank the gentlelady from west virginia and i thank her for those comments about women in west virginia and how this bill would affect them. and what we are hearing all across our nation is, this is not a bill that women want. indeed, the spot, whymomsrule.com ran a survey and only 7% of the american women think the health care proposals that have been brought by the leadership, the democrat leadership, are proposals that reflect their concern. we know that, we are listening, we hear them and we have ways to solve this issue so it puts patients and families in charge of those decisions, not the federal government and it preserves that freedom and indeed for small businesses and we all know, women-owned small businesses are a very active part in ou
orificecal discipline. it's a kitchen table problem for america's seniors and for the physicians who are partners in the medicare program. medicare's ability to guarantee health care for seniors would be eliminated if these cuts went into effect. we are rightly asking much of the health care providers in health reform. we are demanding that they provide care more efficiently, that they improve the quality of care, that they give taxpayers good value for their dollars. in return we need to pay them fairly for their efforts and to be an honest partner. we have two basic choices. we can solve this problem permanently or we can enact another one-year band-aid. this legislation says that we will finally enact lasting reform. the house recognized in our budget that honest accounting means facing this problem squarely and finding a way to address it. this legislation meets that call, replacing the sustainable growth rate for physicians, or s.g.r., which congress enacted in 1997 with a more responsible and stable system for the future. we must be honest about this problem and address it resp
on what your base level is. >> my question was about what's going on in latin america. one thing is about honduras. two days ago there was a mission from the u.s. maybe you have some update. the other thing is that also, next week is going to be in brazil. ack mini dean jad is going to be there the 23rd in brazil. he wants to do that between the countries. first of all, on honduras, the principal deputy assistant secretary craig was there the last few days. he's now returned. his goal down there was to urge both parties to sit down and implement the accord, which they've already committed to do, on october 30. he met with the president and represents of the verification commission. i think the message that he had was that it's really -- it's up to the hondurans to implement this agreement that they've already actually agreed to, and this is in the interests of honduras. our role in this is to support this process. there are right now still smart patriotic and pragmatic hondurans who are working towards the implementation of this acord and -- accord. as i say, we support those efforts and
